New national ‘handicap ranking’ goes live via Scottish Golf

Body create a brand new Order of Merit-style national listing for golfers.

SCOTTISH GOLF have unveiled a new National Handicap Order of Merit that will, for the first time, allow golfers in Scotland to see where they rank amongst their peers.

Within the Scottish Golf App, this new functionality allows golfers to quickly see not only where they rank at their club but nationally overall. The results can also be filtered by gender.

This can be viewed in the ‘My Handicap’ section of the App under the ‘My Handicap Ranking’ tab and when logged in through the Scottish Golf website.

As well as golfers being able to see where they rank, a full list of handicaps from across the country, filterable by region and club, will now be accessible on the Scottish Golf website. By accessing this list, golfers and club officials will be able to view the handicap indices of the 175,000 affiliated golfers with an index in Scotland.

Speaking about the launch of the new National Handicap Order of Merit, Scottish Golf Head of VMS, Dave Kernohan said the addition of the OOM was another piece of added value to the revamped digital platform for club golfers in the home of golf.

“Through speaking to golfers and club officials, it became clear to us that a National Handicap Order of Merit is something that would be a valuable addition to our offering,” said Kernohan.

“Now, golfers will have the ability to benchmark themselves, and measure their progress against other golfers around the country. It will now be possible to instantly see this ranking at their club and nationally through the App or when logged in to the Scottish Golf website.

“This will allow them to chart their ranking journey as their handicap index changes.

“With the addition of the full list of handicap indices available on the website, it will now also be possible to look up the handicap index of any golfer who is affiliated to Scottish Golf on the website. From the feedback we have received, we believe this will add value, and prove useful to both individual golfers and our affiliated clubs.”
